Sweet Pea is just as sweet as can be! Estimated to be a year old, this Labrador Retriever mix arrived at the Rowan County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on February 6th. Sweet Pea was a stray, but because she was so friendly, the shelter expected her owner to come looking for her. But no one came for Sweet Pea. As a larger black dog in a rural kill shelter, Sweet Pea's life was in peril. With the shelter full, she was given a deadline of 4 p.m. on February 10th.
